Mui Scroll

This is another scroll brushed by Richard Man. It is the character Mui, which in Japanese means Idleness or not working. I do not know if it is the same meaning in Chinese. Hopefully, it is not a reference to how late it was to get these works back to him. I want to get them right, and the size that he demands tells me I need to take more time.

The wallscroll is completed in the Maru Hyougu style. With a gold on green Ichimonji and a Shike cloth that is a reed brown for the Ten and Chi. The hashira are narrow, but the 7 bun typically is wider than that seen on a Gyou no Gyou style scroll. A red lacquer wooden jikusaki and the Old 3 color hanging string complete the work.
